DTI: Meetings with Helen Liddell

Lord Hanningfield asked Her Majesty's Government:

Lord Sainsbury of Turville: I refer the noble Lord to the Answer I gave on 29 June, Official Report, cols. WA25-26. In addition to the meetings held with Ministers, the Chief Scientific Adviser, and the Chief Executive of UKTI, a number of further meetings have been held with officials. It is not the department's policy to reveal the names of anybody below heads of department. All of the meetings concentrated on topics relating to Australia.

Meeting notes were taken for the meetings held with the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and the Chief Scientific Adviser.

Lord Hanningfield asked Her Majesty's Government:

Lord Sainsbury of Turville: A copy of both notes will be placed in the Libraries of the House.

Elections: Service Personnel

Lord Garden asked Her Majesty's Government:

10 Oct 2005 : Column WA23

Lord Drayson: Two meetings have taken place, on 18 May and 5 July. The following initiatives are in hand:

To produce a combined information leaflet and registration form. The commission will produce 300,000 copies for distribution through MoD channels to all service personnel and service families well in advance of any registration deadlines. The leaflets/forms will be distributed during September to coincide with this year's annual canvass.

The MoD and the commission will also provide press releases and articles for MoD in-house publications and the Internet, information on the commission's website, and broadcasts via the British Forces Broadcasting Service to raise awareness of the need to register and the distribution of the information/registration leaflet. Information will be published on the department's and single-services websites.

The MoD will re-emphasise guidance on voting options for those abroad or likely to be away from a UK address that they should consider whether to appoint a proxy.

We believe that these initiatives will ensure that service personnel are provided with the relevant information to enable them to register to vote and choose the option which suits them best to exercise their vote.
